This is an event to recognise the independent sector’s leading influencers and innovators who have made an impact in some way: the top 25. The innovation or influence need not be radical (although could be), but it should have captured the imagination of others, changed their behaviours, improved pedagogy or school management processes, and had a measurable positive impact on children and/or independent education in the UK and, ideally, be replicable in other schools. It could also be for someone who has had an impact over many years of working in the sector.

The deadline for this year has now passed.

The shortlist of the 25 can be seen by clicking on the tab (left). They will be invited to a gala dinner on 21 March 2019, at The Waldorf Hilton. The event is black tie/posh frocks.

The evening:
7.00pm: Drinks reception
7.45pm: Dinner
9.00pm: the 25 cast their vote after the main course has been completed
9.50pm: Awards presentation begins
10.10pm: Awards presentation ends
12.00am: Carriages
